« on: February 01, 2011, 01:30:22 PM »
Goes up for sale this Thursday. Edition size of the Ex is 500 pieces and will cost $500 along with a 10% deposit of $50. He comes with switch out head and hands along with Luke's lightsaber. Not to mention will have some articulation so you can achieve the poses below. Really awesome looking piece.

It is a lot of money for sure. Though it's not the most exspensive item in the high end stuff I've seen. He'll, my War Machine maquette that I flex paid is $550. Just part of the game with this stuff.

Agreed! It looks awesome. If I collected PF's I'd get this and I'm ok with my 1:6h version.

I do not collect a lot of Side Show stuff but I really like this Emperor. Only if I had the extra cash to spend.

In PF scale? I doubt it. They do envrio add on type pieces but usually only for 1:6th stuff.

I am so looking forward to him & the way SS displayed it.
It would be cool if PF Luke & Vader connected to him to make one giant piece.
If you put it under glass, you could customize any pix inside back of case as background since its lighted.
I'm thinking my local gas station would be fitting?

Thats just it, I am excited about them for the 1st time since PF Boba & Vader. Normally I don't get excited because I've got so much SS & GG etc., its just another item to find room for? but I have plans for 1 of them, not sure bouncing ideas around in my head but I have alot of
choices of display. whether to use GG Vader kneeling statue or GG & Kotu & Medicom Royal & Senate Gaurds or Luke & Vader stuff??
My imagination is in overdrive mode, I need to send you a pix of my "Mustafar"custom playset made out of wax from 1000s of candles &
and the Hasbro playset, you may have seen it in 1 of the pix I sent you long ago?? I only light it up in winter, it has about 30 candles burning
hotter than my fireplace.

I got them on Fri at 1:11pm? He is bigger than I thought! twice as wide as normal PF? almost as tall.
INHO best SS piece so far. hands down. the detail is unbelievable. SS really captured his essence perfectly.
The detail to face & skin is creepy, looks like spoiled mayo w/black spots all over the body & the eyes "follow" you.
Well worth the $. no regrets, will get a 1 to 1 Emp if they do it? The biggest problem now is? I HAVE to tear down & rebuild rooms of stuff
in order to make him a center piece. This is my favorite SS item.

I just got mine Saturday and have yet to open it...  I'm not sure how you got it was one of the biggest ever LP, I found this box to be appearing quite small, especially after considering it has a throne inside.  In any case, I have to FIND a place for it and then I'll see how it looks next to the rest of the PF Sith Lords!  :)

Pf Palpy was the 1st PF I opened & he seems bigger because he's sitting in throne, much wider? Maybe its just me??
Very glad I got 2

I've gotten 2, but not in the way I would have liked.  I ordered this back in December, got it and it had a chipped base and ONE set of hands.  I just opened up my second one and it TOO only has ONE set of hands.  I really don't wanna send this thing back again, but I'm a little bit PO'd they're not in there.  BBTS asked to verify the contents but I was worried about it being packed back up right so I said NO thinking there was no way in hell it'd be wrong twice. I guess they got my ass.  :-\  At least the base ain't chipped on this one and it's still within the first couple hundred in the run.

Did you get him from BBTS & not SS??
I gave both versions a complete inspection & all was there & in perfect condition & right back in box.

That is NOT cool.

OK so now the story is the non exclusive only comes with ONE set of hands not two as the folks on the phone at Sideshow informed me.  I do feel like getting the standard limits you after seeing the shots of the exclusive at JTA.  It's a nice piece, but one of the few times where purchasing the standard issue fell short.
